- Cork in second place in public vote
- Shannon’s on previously beaten by Mostar
Cork Airport has fallen at the final hurdle in its bid to secure a Eurowings route in a public vote. A rush of voting for rival Kosice gave the Slovakian city the win, despite 10,500 people voting for the Irish airport live on Facebook.
Speaking on the earlier round of the competition, which got the Leeside airport into the final, Cork Airport Managing Director Niall MacCarthy said: “We are amazed at the support from the public. Over the past week, people have rallied to ensure Cork Airport made the final three and we are delighted to have topped the poll in round one.”
Last year, Shannon Airport was also beaten in the final vote by Mostar in a Eurowings competition.
Cork Airport said it will continue to engage with the Lufthansa subsidiary to get a new route between Ireland and Germany.
